Mrs. Sumalee Ananpalungjai, 58 years old I got knee ache, I could not keep balance when walking. My knee hurt like there was a lot of pressure press hard there. I went to see many doctors at many places. They all said that I needed to have theartificial knee joint total replacement operation. I did not want to have that kind of surgery so I bear with my pain while keep on looking for alternatives, for almost 5 years. I search the data on the surgery; it said that the artificial knee joint last for about 10 years. When I talk to the one, who had the surgery, they said that after 3 years they felt that they need another surgery to changefor the new one. Therefore, I decide not to take it yet. In my opinion, one who should have the artificial knee join replacement is over 70 years old.
I search and search for many methods. Finaly,someone suggested me to Dr.Somsak Laowattana. When the doctor saw me, he said the knee bow so much how you bear with it. I told him it hurt for a long time. I acknowledged the treatment and asked if there is anyother alternatives. He then said to try the tailor-made structural adjustment shoes. The shoes adjusted the way of walking.
After wearing the shoes for a month, I did not feel the pain, and feel good. The relief was from the shoes and the way of walking. Anyway, the doctor suggested having the MHTO surgery to get rid of the problem at the cause, not just a relief. The surgery will correct and straighten the bow knee. Put them back in shape. He said with my condition the MHTO can be applied. My condition was better than some that came, who cloud not go with MHTO. He observed that my knee twisted out. He said to pull it back should be better than replace the knee joint. I was so HAPPY ! because knee surgery with this technique, my knee is still my knee not artificial knee joint.
